I began my media career two decades ago covering the fall of Apartheid in South Africa. Since then I have covered major stories around the world.
My first job was as the economics correspondent for South Africa’s Business Day newspaper. As the country began to open up to the world, I expanded my focus to cover Southern Africa for Dow Jones & Co, publishers of The Wall Street Journal before moving into television, to produce South Africa’s first daily news programme for the owners of Britain’s Financial Times.
My television experience brought me to the UK in the nineties to produce a morning show at CNBC, the international business news channel. I rose up the ranks to edit and plan the channel’s European news coverage. After 5 years at CNBC, I joined the BBC‘s newsgathering operation, specialising in the coverage of foreign news for television, radio and online. I’m currently based in the BBC’s Nairobi bureau, focusing on events in Africa.
The BBC has given me the opportunity to combine my experience in journalism with a long held interest in photography. My work has increasingly taken on a multimedia dimension, using photography, video and audio to tell compelling stories from around the world. I’m always looking for interesting ways to use words, pictures and sound and believe multimedia is the future of journalism.
A more detailed list of my experience is on my Linked In page.
